LONDON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The WOCU®, an independent, composite global currency unit, has been incorporated in the Tradermade Systems Ltd ("TraderMade") charting software.
The WOCU, a registered trademark of WOCU Limited, is an independent, apolitical, elegantly constructed composite currency unit that naturally adjusts to the rise and fall in the prominence of its constituents; the currencies of the World's Top Twenty economies measured by their GDP. The WOCU embraces the success of booming economies and reduces exposure to those that are struggling. It is entirely transparent, trustworthy and is based on real currency values.
TraderMade develops, sells and supports cutting edge analytical software for the global financial markets. It provides real-time market data and proprietary analytics to dealers within leading banks, corporations, financial institutions and individual traders worldwide. It has incorporated the WOCU, an exciting new financial tool, in line with its effort to lead and innovate in this highly competitive niche market.
The WOCU is inherently stable, and delivers greater certainty than any single currency. The WOCU provides for changes in the ranking of the major countries and its structure takes into account any variation in the components of the Euro. In particular it provides a safe haven for FX positions and potentially could act as the global trade reference currency.
Mike Blakey, MD of WOCU Limited said; "WOCU Limited is delighted that TraderMade has recognised the WOCU's place in the FX landscape, and what the WOCU has to offer as a universal and transparent global reference."
David Upton, CEO of TraderMade said; "TraderMade are very pleased to support the WOCU composite, and to include it in our charting platforms. We support the initiatives being undertaken by the WOCU, and consider it a valid instrument to include on our platforms alongside the mainstream FX data we supply."
